Entrance Dua 4

Bismillah

Oh Allah! Make us forget the suggestions of our nafs and the evil whisperings of shaytaan the moment we hear them and make us recall Your words and guide us with them.

Allahumma salli ala Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallim.
Alhamdulillahi rabbil Alameen. Ameen.

  1. Salaam do you have the Arabic txt for this?

  2. Nope. I wrote this one myself.
    I’ll mention if it is from the Sunnah and source the Arabic when it is, in sha Allah!

  3. Ameen ya RABB!

  4. As salaamu ‘aleykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu

    Forgive me for a comment not related to the post. There is an excellent new blog dedicated to a book called: *An Incomplete History: The Muslims of Spain Post 1492 in a Global Context and its Relevance to Muslims Today*

    http://historyofandalus.wordpress.com/

    The situation of the Muslims living in the West today poses a striking similarity to the situation of the Muslims in Al- Andalus post 1492 (when the last Muslim ruler surrendered the last Muslim stronghold of Granada to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella). This marked the official end to Islamic rule in Al- Andalus. However, this did not mean all the Muslims left Al Andalus in one go.

    Muslims lived in Andalus for at least two hundred years after the fall (1492). Their lives were not easy. In many cases they were forced to give up their identities, could not practice Islam in public, they were not allowed to speak Arabic (and therefore could not pray in congregation) or even give their children Muslim names! So what began as tolerance for the practice of Islam in Al- Andalus and allowing for their affairs to be judged under Shari’ah courts (Capitulations of Granada) slowly but surely led to the persecution of the Muslims of Al-Andalus until no trace of Muslims in Andalus were to be found.

  5. Shukran for that link- I have been contemplating al-Andalus and it’s relevance to us today. It is, by far, the most cited reason for muslims to leave the lands of non-Muslims for the lands of Muslims.

    I think this might be too hasty however and the example of al-Andalus needs to be more fully explored.

  6. What is too hasty? 1) The writing of the book or 2) the concept of leaving “the lands of non-Muslims for the lands of Muslims”?

  7. I think it deserves more discussion so we can benefit from it as best as possible. And to that end we have your blog to help!

    Jazaka Allahu khayran! 🙂
